4 month bump update | baby #4

4 Months already! This month we get to find out if there is a little boy in there or if there is a little girl in there. Such an exciting month ahead!

how far along are you? 18w4d

how big is baby? Baby is now about the size of a sweet potato.

how are you feeling? Fatigue. That is all. I’ve been exhausted at least 90% of my days. The struggle is so real with this one. I’ve just ordered a bunch of Young Living supplements to hopefully help with the tiredness. Some Super B, Multigreens and Ningexia Red Drink! I’m really hoping that this makes a big difference in a couple weeks from now.

how is sleep? Sleep is great! It’s honestly my favorite time of day at this point! I’m just happy that I don’t have to wake up a million times to pee yet…that time will come as baby get’s bigger…for now I cherish my sleep time.

best moment of the week? I got to enjoy a strawberry milkshake from Dairy Queen and it was delicious…I’ve been craving one for months now.

what foods do you love? hate? I’m all about pickles right now! Baby dills with extra garlic are my favorite! I love fruit, pretty well all kinds but blueberries are my go to. I also really enjoy veggies and dip. Sound too healthy? lol. Well I love carbs and just can’t seem to get enough, toast with butter, I love rice and I dream about potato’s (cooked all kinds of ways) I’m trying to eat healthier but it’s hard when my cravings are carbs and lots of them. Another love is hot chocolate with a shot of mint (at tim horton’s)

Coffee was the only thing I didn’t want to drink. For Jayden’s Birthday a few weeks ago I actually bought him a pour over coffee system this one. And guys I love the coffee it brews, so coffee is on the radar again. I still enjoy 1-2 cups a day…it’s not my favorite thing to drink, but I am just so thankful that I am able to drink it again.

what are you looking forward to?  The most exciting thing will be our March 22nd Ultrasound (gender one) Jayden get’s to come with me to it, so I am looking forward to him being there and getting to see our baby for the first time via ultrasound! Then we find out the gender, so I’m brainstorming some ideas for a gender reveal video.

anything else to report? Honestly, not really. The last couple of days my energy levels have started increasing and that makes me so happy. I’m even thinking of adding some fitness back into my life as it’s been a very long time since then. I’m planning some meals today for this week and I am gonna do a big grocery shop tomorrow so I can really focus on eating a lot better. The past couple of months have been very hard with the crazy fatigue I had and I’m not gonna lie I’ve been eating way too much takeout from fast food places.

Didn’t Jayden do a wonderful job capturing some 4 months photos of me the other day? I’m training him up to do more fashion posts as that is something I have always been interested in…but it has also been one of those things that has terrified me to put more pictures of myself out there. But sometimes you just need to get out of your comfort zone to really discover the beauty in yourself…that confidence that sometimes get’s lost….No more….time to accept where I am at with body image (I generally do a good job of that during pregnancy) but it’s time to just love on myself a whole lot more. My body is doing amazing things afterall…and my time will come to shed all of the weight, but as for now my focus will be on self love while I grow our last Baby Madsen ❤
